Remember Calhoun inherited one of the worst programs in division one. Especially when it comes to winning ways and losing culture. He had to put a patchwork recruiting class in when he arrived. This is going to take a few years I bet some of these players transferring were told to leave and scholarships not renewed. He has a good class coming in with all state players and a division 1 transfer that can score. Covington and Bohannon were very good freshman. I wouldn't be surprised he brings some major transfers in that can help us immediately.

Yes. Like I said earlier in the season when people were disappointed with all the losses, it's a big process to turn this program around and completely change the culture which was stale and stagnant. 2-3 years minimum. We have our PG's of the future coming in next year which will help big time.

Calhoun hit on Covington with Georgia ties, needs to head south again in coming years. Unfortunately no unsigned bigs available this year.

After watching a vid of Otchere it would be amazing if we brought this kid in. His ability to show on the perimeter and yet recover to the post defensively is amazing for a 6"10 kid. Who cares if he can score or not. If the program hits on at least 3 of these recruits , look out in 2 years

He committed to Stony Brook.

Bummer. Tough to compete with a program that made the NCAA tournament a few years ago.

We have offered Adrian Nelson, a 6-6 wing from Pickerington Central. He just de committed from Detroit because of their coaching change.

It is imperative that this recruiting class sees it through for four years. The culture needs to be built on a solid base instead of the revolving door of players through here.

Nelson is definitely a Calhoun guy. Would be a nice fit with this class but we'll see. He's got some other solid offers to consider.

Seen some words from Darius Quiseberry's Mom about YSU' s Fab4 Freshmen, Quisenberry, Simmons, Taylor and Nelson. That'd be a dream class. Stay tuned on Nelson
